What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is an FDA approved non-surgical fat reduction treatment. It is not a weight loss treatment, and you should be at or near your goal weight for best results. It is effective at reducing small areas of fat that are difficult to get rid of even with a healthy lifestyle, such as in the:
- Bra bulge
CoolSculpting works by essentially “freezing” the fat cells in the targeted area through a process called cryolipolisis. After the fat cells are frozen, they are eliminated naturally by your body, resulting in a 25% to 30% reduction in fat volume. It may take multiple treatments to reach your end goal, so patience is required throughout the process.
A typical CoolSculpting treatment takes an hour to perform, and does not require anesthesia. You’ll feel a brief sensation of cold, after which the targeted area will go numb and you won’t feel anything. You can spend the hour reading, watching TV, taking a nap, catching up on work, almost anything you want.
Is CoolSculpting Right for You?
CoolSculpting may be right for you if:
- You do not want to undergo liposuction
- You are at or near a stable, healthy weight
- You have small areas of unwanted, pinchable fat
- You have realistic expectations
CoolSculpting is a slower, more gradual process than liposuction, and the results aren’t as dramatic after one treatment. In addition, liposuction can treat larger areas of fat. If you do not want to undergo a surgical procedure and understand that your results will be very gradual with CoolSculpting, you may be a great candidate.
Cost of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is typically less expensive than liposuction, although it will depend on how many sessions you need and how many areas you want to have treated. Dr. Fugo will be happy to discuss costs during your consultation, and he will let you know if liposuction would be a more cost-effective option to get the results you want.
